ttF Fashion Diary: Hibiscus Ruffle

ttF Fashion Staple: Gold Hoops
Beach cover-ups can be incredibly pricy. And unless you’re a jet setter, really how often do you wear flowy tunics over bikinis? That’s why I like using tops as beach cover-ups. You’ve already seen my fave chiffon one from Forever 21 and a steal I scored from Chico’s over the summer. This is actually a plus-size top that I wear as a tunic. It was my ex-boyfriend’s mother’s and I can tuck it into jean shorts or wear as is over a bathing suit. Since we were stopping by a pool party today, I added gold accents with a simple pair of hoops and metallic flip-flops.

As for the bathing suit, I tried The Fit Specialist at Swimspot. They help you select bathings suits according to your shape and sense of style. My girlie self ended up with this adorable ruffled two piece in olive, which makes the flirty details more sophisticated.
